Kucherov, Lightning beat Canucks 5-2 in fight-filled game

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Once all the fighting was finally done, the Tampa Bay Lightning looked up and found themselves in a familiar position: ahead on the scoreboard.

Nikita Kucherov had a goal and an assist to reach 50 points this season and lead the Lightning past the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Tuesday night.

A feisty Canucks squad kept pace with Tampa Bay in a heated game marked by a flurry of brawls, but couldn't overpower the top team in the NHL.
